BOHO & BAROQUE 
Paris: The F/W 13 Paul & Joe collection started out all breezy bohemian, with silk pajama pants, unstructured oversize blazers, cozy cardigans and printed silk blouses, and graduated into flamboyant baroque with gold jacquard tailoring, lace shirts and fabulous frock coats. There was a feeling of Mick and Marianne in both ends of the spectrum: Her over-the-knee suede boots and ingenue dresses with high necks and short hemlines, his patchwork pelts, velvet slacks and brocade blazers. Designer Sophie Albou confidently displayed her grasp on masculine-feminine dressing, with a touch of her signature naiveté in pretty jeweled embroidery and an illustrated horse print that could have come from a children’s book. The coat was the lynchpin of the collection, with options for all occasions from oversized wool duffles to smart fur-trimmed pea coats and a lovely sheepskin number with color-block sleeves. Youthful, effortless and cool, it ticked all of the Paul & Joe girl’s boxes. — Natalie Shukur
